Aspen Junior Hockey’s Squirt B team, consisting of local 9- and 10-year-old boys, finished second this past weekend at the Continental Divide Youth Hockey League Championship in Fort Collins.

The team entered the four-team regional tournament with the No. 2 seed after finishing the regular season 10-3-3. Aspen opened with a win Friday against third-seeded Denver Country Club, then lost Saturday morning to top-seeded Steamboat Springs. Aspen had to face DCC again Saturday afternoon – after DCC knocked out the fourth-seeded Colorado Hockey Club of Colorado Springs – and earned a 3-0 shutout.

Aspen then faced off against Steamboat Springs again in Sunday’s championship but came up short.

The runner-up finish qualifies Aspen to compete against the top three teams in the state – including Steamboat Springs – this weekend at the Colorado Amateur Hockey Association’s State Championships.
